Publisher's Summary

Alexis and Elliott begin the series with the largely overlooked 11th president, James K. Polk, and are joined by America's favorite satirist, Jon Stewart, writer and comedian John Hodgman, author Regina Mason, and Barney's Creative Ambassador-at-Large Simon Doonan.

Presidents Are People Too!, an Audible Original, recasts each of the American presidents as real-life people, complete with flaws, quirks, triumphs, scandals and bodily ailments. Hosts Elliott Kalan, former Daily Show head writer, and American historian and author Alexis Coe talk to experts, comedians, journalists, actors and re-enactors to better understand the men memorialized on the Washington Mall and those all but forgotten.

Not sure who the target audience is, Kids or Adults?

Mildly entertaining. Interesting facts about the subject. Could have done without the vulgar language in the contribution by John Stewart.

Not what you may think!

I was extremely disappointed to find out that this book is a comical treatment of our presidency!
I feel as though I have wasted my money in selecting it.
I hope that readers who might make the same mistake will look more carefully as to its content
